Re: Cymbalta and terribe sweating.......

Hello himmylover.

Effexor and Cymbalta are both SNRIs. I haven't tried Cymbalta but the excessive sweating was one of the reasons I stopped taking Effexor. The excessive sweating didn't stop until after I was reducing my Effexor dosage.

If you can tolerate the night sweats I would suggest giving the Cymbalta a few more weeks. If you really dread taking the Cymbalta and can't stand the night sweats anymore I would say try a different medication.

Re: Cymbalta and terribe sweating.......

Yes, this a side effect. I would sweat through 3 sets of clothes a day. The medication worked for about 3 years and then it stopped working. I had the sweats during the day. I take two showers a day as it is. But there was no way to stop the sweating.

With-drawling off Cymbalta was the worst.


I talked to my doctor because I am now on Prozac and once again I sweat like a pig. She said it could be caused by anxiety.

I had terrible sweats from cymbalata as well. unfortunately, it didnt seem to help with my depression so i stopped it after 8 weeks. maybe it will go away, ask your psychiatrist about it
